SUCs in Tarlac to train Hacienda Luisita agrarian reform beneficiaries on modern farming, entrepreneurship

piaCITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, September 3 (PIA) -- Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has signed a partnership agreement with Tarlac College of Agriculture (TCA) and Tarlac State University (TSU) to train around 1,240 agrarian reform beneficiaries in Hacienda Luisita on modern farming and entrepreneurship.

“Now that these former farmworkers finally own the land they till, they need to learn modern ways of farming. We also want them to learn to become entrepreneurs so that they will be able to manage their farm products efficiently and market them properly,” DAR Regional Director Arnel Dizon said in a press statement.

The partnership, which is under DAR’s Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services Program, will have as students those who are members of the 10 farmers’ cooperatives belonging to the 10 barangays of the vast sugar estate.

Under it, TCA and TSU will provide instructors, lecturers and trainers to teach the farmers about modern farming techniques and practices, optimizing crop production, and the use of modern farm equipment.

They will likewise invite professionals to enhance their basic knowledge on bookkeeping, cash flows, market surveys, costing and labor, and proper packaging of their products.

“The trainings will be intensive and will end by August next year. After a year, we expect them to confidently stand on their own, able to sustain their farm and to negotiate and conduct business like a pro,” Dizon said.

Apart from this, DAR shall release a total of P700,000 to the mentioned cooperatives as well as provide farm machineries and equipment. (CLJD with Mark Louden Marquez and Jesse Deeward Simon-PIA 3 interns)
